We are pleased to announce the posting of the Summer 2018 issue of the Colorado Journal of Asian Studies. This issue five contains papers covering a wide range of Asia-related topics: “Spatial Expressions of Tradition and Modernity in Urban China: An Examination and Comparison of the Origins, Evolution and Presentation of Identity in Beijing and Shanghai” (Isabelle Bose); “Sex Matters: Appreciating the Feminine in Tantric Practice” (Fiona Bradley); “The Overseas Chinese: The Diaspora’s Impact on Local Society in Indonesia and Malaysia” (Alex Carter); “Shifting Indigenous Subsistence Practices in Taiwan and Hokkaido under Japanese Colonization” (Lillian Poush); and Food Authenticity as an Experiential Tourist Attraction (Jessica Yan).

The Colorado Journal of Asian Studies is published annually by the Center for Asian Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. We publish original, quality undergraduate research on almost any aspect of Asia (East, Southeast, South, or West) or Asian culture and welcome submissions of original scholarly work from any undergraduate student in any department at CU Boulder or at other universities. Authors of Asia-related research papers can submit them directly; we also hope that faculty members will encourage their students whose papers fit this description to contact us. All papers will be reviewed for acceptance by the journal editor.

We welcome papers that are at least 2500 words in length and that conform to the MLA citation style. The deadline for the Summer 2019 issue is 1 June 2019. All published work is freely available to the public. 

Paper submissions and questions should be addressed to the editor, Colleen Berry, at colleen.berry@colorado.edu.
